In response to what has been happening in the country, I am reopening the submissions for "Firewords".

I am halting production of "TO Love Azucar" to begin focusing on this project.

What I am accepting:

Maximum amount of submissions per person: 5

For each literary work: maximum 2 typed pages/per piece

For each digital work: min of 1 minute of performance

  2. videos about the black/minority experience

Any questions feel free to contact us. Subject line: Firewords

It's about that time ya'll. WORKSHOP time!

I have been planning this workshop for about a year. Yes, it was supposed to happen last year. But I was having trouble perfecting the material.

So now, we ready!

Students of the Art Online Workshop is a writing workshop for any type of writer who wants to perfect their performance and hosting skills. I was able to secure some great teachers for y'all.

In the next post, I will introduce you to all the teachers. Don't worry! I am teaching the majority of the classes but there are some things that I still need to learn. I will be learning with you from my friends that are the best at things like metaphor and personification.

I am so excited for this session because I can grow from these weeks too.
